UPVC Door Security
High Security Door Cylinders
Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.
- A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
- Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
- When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
- Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
- All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty
The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.
Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.
The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

10/10 customer service! I stupidly locked my keys inside my apartment and thankfully I had my phone on me. After calling them, they arrived in 20 minutes and got me back inside in under like 10 minutes. Thank you.
Thank you for such a glowing review Bruce!
After using these guys a couple of times they have such a strong team, the company has fast and friendly locksmiths with high quality services to suit everyone.
Hi Taylor, I am pleased to hear you were happy with our services.
From the minute the gentleman arrived to the minute he left I could tell he was highly qualified and passionate about his profession. He explained the process throughout changing my front door locks to reassure me on how secure my new locks were. He also gave me a fair price and finished in just under 30 minutes. I would highly recommend.
Thank you for a great review Edith! 🙂
Perfect, Quick and Professional. What more could a customer ask for?! I would Highly recommend
Hi Roza, thank you for your review! 🙂
had a 2 hour slot booked in with this company. They arrived on time and carried out the job in good time and only had to pay for the lock on top of what they quoted which was no issue as I required a certain look for my front and back door. The engineer was really lovely although he did leave a bit of dust/wood all over the floor.
Thank you for leaving your review Donna, we are sorry for any mess that was left behind and will pass on your feedback to our engineer 🙂
Highly Secure Euro Cylinder
The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.
Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.
Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.
Resist lock snapping and bumping
Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock
The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.
Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
